Pre Sales Questions

These queries are made in the GTX Gaming Discord. With replies made by GTX staff/Moderators

How much time does it usually take to have a gaming VPS/Game server up and running after purchase?

30 minutes max after payment is confirmed, if you paid with PayPal, payment confirms instantly and automatically.

I am unsure what specs I will need. Can up the slots or ram capacity for the server?

You can upgrade and downgrade your server at any time, once you pay for a change it will send you an invoice to pay for the change and it'll be rectified in your invoice at your billing period too.

7 Days To Die: Will I actually need 16GB RAM in the plan or will I be relatively fine with 12GB Ram?

The amount of RAM needed will depend on if you run any mods, and what map size you use. You can upgrade and downgrade your server at any time.

Offsite Backups, how often are these performed?

The offsite backups and backups are generated each time you start your server and you can create a backup whenever you wish via the control panel.

How do you guys handle support? Is there an option to handle it via discord?

It's mainly by ticket system, we have 24/7 support on tickets, but you are free to ask me anything here in discord I'm basically available all days almost the entire day, but if I'm not around, tickets are 24/7.


Tickets are accessed through your client area of our website. 

I was looking into a host for a Minecraft server. My only question was what CPU's are the servers using?

The models we use are Intel E3 up to Ryzen 5950x / i9 12900ks depends on the cpu speed you order

The exact CPU model you will get when you order, it's random, it's by clock speed you order not by model, if you choose 4.2ghz it can go on certain E3 models, and even Intel / Ryzen models with that speed.
Multiple CPU models/brands use the same/similar clock speeds, your server gets created (where's a free slot) in one of those CPUs that run on the clock speed you ordered.
But if for some reason you looking after a specific model, once you order, I can try to see in what CPU model it went, and move you to the model you want (needs to match the cpu clock you ordered).

Looking to rent a dedicated server (not hosted) if purchased today when would it be accessible please?

Dedicated servers are normally ready within 24 - 48 hours, but can be sooner!

Am I able to run tmodloader mods? Also memory allocation it says "up to 5 gigs/etc", how exactly does that work out?

You can run mods on your Terraria server, including TModLoader.


You have 5GB of free ram. If your server uses over that, it will shut down until started again. You can upgrade and downgrade your maximum ram at any time.

1st time renting a game server and I see this is a UK based company, im in the United States and would there be server lag using your servers?

Nope. You can choose the location where your server is hosted. There are a few locations to choose from in the US.

I want to purchase an Atlas server and I am curious, what grid size do you get when you purchase?

Full Atlas map it's 255 grids, 1 server = 1 grid.
You can order any amount of servers you want, most common its 2x2 (4 servers) or 3x3 (9 servers)

Conan Exiles. Does GTXGaming support the testlive server/client for the 3.0 update

Hi yes, we support TestLive updates, once you get your Conan Server, install TestLive Update from the Mod Manager button.

7 days to die server, would I be able to add mods?

Yes, you can add any mods! We have the most popular ones as 1 click easy install also.

Where can I do a Ping Check for the rust servers?

Try this new tool we are doing

Is there an auto wipe function for the rust servers?

Yes, auto wipe auto update included.

Purchased a game server.. but the Game Panel is empty? Guessing I have to wait till tomorrow?

Servers should create the server in 30 minutes after payment, unless some problem with the payment, in that case, open a support ticket from your client area to have it looked into.

This Rcon discord bot for rent, does it support DayZ, Space Engineers, Valheim and Project Zomboid?

Supports 100% ARK, and very limited features on Dayz, doesn't support space, Valheim, or Project Zomboid. On that specific but it's not possible, I think there are some specific bots for Dayz, etc, but we just host that one but with a cheap VPS package, you can host any bot.

Does the Skyrim Together Mod server update automatically when there is a new patch?

Hello - it doesn't automatically update. You'll need to use the "Update Server" button on your game panel.

I was looking at renting a satisfactory server, and I was wondering, is it possible to upload a save for the server to use or is it a fresh one?

You can upload a save to the server using the control panel. Mods are not supported for Satisfactory. 🙂

I would like to do a Space Engineers server, my world is rather large so I am concerned about how many resources I would use, do you have a Free Trial or a way to POC the world built?

You will have full access to the config files to increase block limits and such. You can also upgrade and downgrade your server resources at any time from your client area.


There is no free trial but there is a 24-hour refund policy, so you can always pick up a server and try it.
